It’s not easy being a mom.
You constantly feel pulled in a dozen directions at once. And it’s always a balancing act, trying to figure out how to fit in work, family time, and time for yourself. Sometimes you feel like you just can’t take another step…but step you must. You’re being counted on.
I’m not saying being a mom is like running a marathon. Yes, there is the constant trot forward in an attempt to cover ground, make progress, be better than you were yesterday. And both take practice and building endurance. But there’s no finish line in sight. This race goes on forever.
Stonyfield is the official yogurt sponsor of the Boston Marathon this year.
Not only will Stonyfield be handing out cups of yogurt to racers, their families, and race volunteers at the 118th Boston Marathon on Monday, May 21, 2014, but they also sponsored 10 runners who just missed the cut-off to the race. It’s so wonderful that they’re getting another chance at the big day! They also will be giving away a bunch of healthy living themed-prizes on the day of the marathon, including a year-long gym membership – all you need to do is tweet or instagram #StonyfieldSuperFan. That’s a conversation you’ll want to join in!
“Like the members of Team Stonyfield, we felt compelled to participate in this year’s race to show our deep love and support for the city of Boston and New England community,” said Gary Hirsherg, Stonyfield’s co-founder. “We’re so proud of our inspiring team and are excited to be working with the Boston Athletic Association to make this year’s race a celebration of Boston’s tremendous spirit and resiliency.” What a celebration it will be!
Stonyfield Greek helps me keep on keeping on.
Too busy in the morning for breakfast? I grab a cup of Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt for when I get to work. I’m really digging the Super Fruits right now. Stomach isn’t feeling too great? Up the Stonyfield Greek intake in hopes of finding balance again. There is no stopping for recovery! Baking or cooking, snacking or breakfasting, Stonyfield Greek is there for me. It’s my own little cheering squad contained in a cup. I can do it! I have a lot of miles ahead of me still…
